Very enjoyable. Friendly service but not always efficient. The food was terrific and it is possible to try a few different items and share. Very fun!

Hard to imagine any better sushi...
Recently rated the best sushi in SLC, its easy to understand why. The menu, while simple, is varied enough but not too exotic. Highlights include: the jellyfish shooter, perfectly crunchy with a sweet/sour vinagrette: double tuna maki (both inside and outside the roll); the salmon maki, good in its simplicity. Servers were friendly and knowledgeable. This may not be the best sushi in SLC (having never eaten anywhere else with which to compare it) but it is hard to imagine any better.

quality and presentation were
quality and presentation were top notch. we found this place after trying to go to the other sushi place downtown that was very unorganized and had poor hours. We would recommend this place over the other one just on the decor and menu offerings alone. Being a wine lover, I was pleasantly surprised at the fine by the glass selections.

Best sushi in Salt Lake - period!
Best fish = best sushi. Sonny the chef has found a way to source top quality fish, of many different types, to Salt Lake city. He gets a lot of items directly from Japan (true japanese beer, sake, A5 wagyu, etc.). I have worked and spent quite a bit of time in Tokyo, and technically, this sushi is as good as you'll get in Japan. From the different types of wasabi and chopped radishes that they put with the sashimi to the presentation, this place is a fabulous hidden gem in Salt Lake. If you really want a true japanese experience, try the omakase ("trust me") dinner. This is where Sonny just picks the best sushi and sashimi that he has and serves it up. It is a great way to try many new things and get the best fish. Enjoy!

Naked Fish Everywhere!!
Excellent fish! Best in SLC. Spicy Gesha was brilliant. Playboy was fantastic. Will definitely be back!

The sashimi and nigiri were
The sashimi and nigiri were excellent. The fish was very fresh. The prices for sashimi and nigiri were reasonable for the quality of fish. The liquor charges are high. We were seated at one of the worst tables in the restaurant for ambiance. Overall we enjoyed the restaurant very much.

Absolute gem of a restaurant!
Excellent food, outstanding service by Ian, great atmosphere. They also have private tatami rooms which would be great for special occasions or small parties. We will return over and over!

Not the same old thing
If you're looking to broaden your horizons then Naked Fish is a must-experience. Sure they have a fresh selection of sushi that is always delicious but their small plates offer many new flavors and textures that you should really try -- the seafood custard, the chicken wings, the tempura offerings offerings -- it's a delight to try them all.

This is one of my favorite
This is one of my favorite places in Salt Lake City. It is withing walking distance to Abravanel Hall and we love to have dinner before the concert at Naked Fish. The food is fantastic and beautifully presented.

A lovely dinner out
The sushi chefs are fascinating to watch at the sushi bar as they carefully make your rolls and other specialty dishes. The dining room was full but we were able to talk easily within our group. The sashimi was like butter - so delicious and fresh. The presentation was excellent as was the attention to detail.

Awesome Japanese Bistro
We had not been to Naked Fish for awhile, and the food and service were superb this visit, a clear step above even the former "leading" Japanese restaurant in Salt Lake. The sushi taste, texture and presentation was subtle, flavorful and a work of art. The starter calamari was exceptional, cooked to perfection. Our server was extremely helpful with advice when asked, and made sure we were served in a reasonable time with several flights of sushi even though the pace was packed and included several large groups. Altogether a superb, seamless evening in a beautiful physical setting.

Good Sushi in SLC
Decent little restaurant. Very good sushi. Service staff could give a little more guidance to first time patrons, more than just suggestions on rolls it would be good to give full direction to create a meal and an experience which is what I'm looking for at the price level charged.
5/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent ambiance and service but the sides were a reason to return. Creative, and well presented.
5/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I know my sushi, and never expected a restaurant in -Salt Lake City- to blow me away. They had prime cuts of yellowtail belly, when we visited. It was perhaps the best piece of nigiri I've had in years.
The only downsides to this place are: they don't have a great bar (but who does in SLC), and they could use some more luxury in the seating and tables. Least we had white table.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I came in from Philadelphia to see family on my birthday and so happy this is where they chose to take me. Loads of fun Nd delicious! Live music was nice and not too loud! We had a party of 10 and they were able to accommodate us.

First time eating there and definitely won't be our last. My wife and I went for our anniversary and loved it.

Consistant good food
Loved this place so much the first time we went back two more times after and will go back again. The Naked Fish is a clean well run restaurant with knowledgable staff that gave excellent reccomendations. The food was excellently prepared and brought to us in a timely manner. Personal favorites of course included the sushi rolls, lamb chop and hen of the wood mushroom tempura with a juice tempura dip that makes your mouth water. There are many other great small course options that will suit every taste need. We felt prices we very reasonable for the quality of food and overall dining experience. Make reservations and take advantage of the valet parking.

Loved Naked Fish
Went before Jersey Boys and seated immediately. Very up beat staff. Excellent innovative sushi that even my sushi snob daughter thought was fabulous. Definitely pricey but made the evening special!
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
I made this reservation because the restaurant was convenient to our conference hotel. The food was delicious - especially the Playboy and the Salmon Tempura rolls.

We love your veggie rolls, thank you for giving the vegetarians options at your restaurant!
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Sushi is exactly what you would expect - except more perfect. Clearly someone is watching over every detail and then adding a few delightful, unexpected touches. Vegetarian, local and gluten free options in abundance. Lovely.

The food at this restaurant was incredible. I know a lot of diners complain about the price. But you certainly get what you pay for!

Consistently very good sushi
I'm a regular at Naked Fish when I travel to SLC. I've enjoyed sushi from Singapore to Curacao. This is very good, and excellent for SLC fare. Prices are reasonable for the quality. The surroundings are quiet and encourage conversation. My only complaint is that even with a reservation and obviously open tables, I always have to wait a few minutes to be seated. Irritating. That they can do better and loses them 1 star.

Good food, attractively presented. Traditional décor for a Japanese restaurant. Valet parking, which was greatly appreciated. Pricey, but worth it every once in a while.

I love the passion and commitment
I love the passion and commitment to quality that I feel is shown at Naked Fish. You can really see it and taste it. I also love learning from Sunny at the sushi bar, its always satisfying.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this food
Every bite is interesting, fresh and so tasty. This s one of my favorite restaurants. I have been coming here since it was Mikado and even with some personel and menu changes it remains unfailingly good. Best rolls in town!

Best of Utah
This is the restaurant if you are looking for real quality food. The chefs there are legit, and very knowledgeable about the food they are serving you. Every time I went there, I was very satisfied. Eating there is not just feeding up my belly, but it is a life experience and adventure, and you will have to go back again and again, because the experience will always be different, yet always satisfying.

nice atmosphere for our family dinn
We have eaten at Takashi a number of times, but when my granddaughter wanted sushi as her farewell dinner I wanted an atmosphere where we could visit away from the noise. I found Naked Fish online an we arrived at 5:30pm and were excorted to a quiet, private cubicle where we sat at a low table. Our server was excellent in relating to our wishes and she recommended a shrimp dish for my grandaughter which was impressive.
Everything was excellent with the sunrise or sunset being our favorite roll. the butterfish on the combination melted in our mouths it was so tender.

The hostess and waiter were very accommodating to us. They seemed genuinely happy to help us and to be working there. The food was amazing quality; the atmosphere was lovely.

Excellent Fresh High Quality Fish!
This place is hands down the best sushi place in Utah. I'm a bit of a sushi nut from the NYC area and the Naked Fish is my new favorite place for fresh Japanese.

Wonderful ramen and great nagiri
The pork broth ramen was incredibly good. One of the best I've ever had. I loved it. After the bowl of ramen, the manager, Sonny, gave us a taste of the octopus that he had. It was unbelievable. Rather than steaming or boiling it, they sous vide it. I've never had octopus like it. It was tender and not in the least rubbery, like octopus so often is, and had a rich and almost smoky flavor to it. Simply a delightful experience.

BEST Ramen in SLC
I normally order their sushi which is the best in town, this time I ordered their pork ramen. This was such great ramen and all around tasty.

Best Sushi in Salt Lake
Naked Fish has the finest sushi in Salt Lake City, particularly if you're looking for traditional sushi. Their fish is always of the highest quality and they source it from sustainable producers. The sushi chefs are extremely skilled and offer the best recommendations on what to order. Always check to see what they have in the way of live seafood! The skewers from the grill are well worth tasting---the wagyu tongue and chicken oysters are both superb! The decor is modern and stylish. Service can be a bit awkward, but is very accommodating and responsive. Expect to pay in proportion for the quality of food here. Prices can be fairly steep, but you will be rewarded with an unmatched taste experience!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good find for just visiting.
My partner and I were in town for business, and are quite picky about the quality of our food. The reviews for Naked Fish were all positive so we decided to try it. We were absolutely delighted. Everything was exquisite. When the soy sauce is made in house, you know that they have a passion for the food they are serving.

Best Japanese to date in SLC
Great fresh food. So happy to find a high quality japanese place in SLC

Some of the best sushi ever
Naked Fish is just plain great. Great food and commitment to sustainable sourcing. I can't go anywhere else anymore.

New Favorite Sushi Place
A different menu than I expected. Only a few sushi rolls are advertised on the menu but they will make a roll for you upon request if they have the ingredients - they only have the freshest seafood on hand. The rolls on the menu are delicious, however, and you probably won't want to request a typical roll. The service was phenomenal and the food came out surprisingly fast. Can't wait to go back and try their other menu items!!

Not only was the food amazing, but the service was fast and friendly. I am always very happy when I come here and this visit was no different.

Great sushi bar, loved the atmosphere. Will be back, enough variety on the menu for a person with a fish allergy (but can eat seafood)

Menu options and quality of each food category were terrific! Sukiyaki was great!
